hi guys

I love starting tables and battling, but have never put any effort in to getting good at hu

any good charts out there that can get me started?

at 40mins we bet 1/3rd on T76sdd board, is this your standard sizing on this board or are you mixing with bigger sizing? on boards such as this I am always going with a larger sizing in an attempt to simplfy things - wondering if this is a mistake.

i also have a question on this.... if pio throws out a highly mixed strategy, how do you go about simplifying this strategy to ensure we aren't losing too much EV, but make it manageable to implement? is there a short cut rather than node lock, re-run sim etc.?

at 7:40 after we 3bet 77 on table 2 and check flop and turn we are obviously capped, in your position I have found myself calling down in this spot potentially too light as a result. any advice on this?

Hi Juan

I was considering getting snowie but heard mixed reviews and didn’t want to buy it, run with my learning from it and find I’m making more mistakes

Would you recommend for 100 and 200nl player?

Comment | Asdfghjkl1 commented on stars chests

Update, I got $10 and 37 coins

At 100 reward points per $1 rake that's $950 dollars worth of rake, for $10 rakeback hahaha!

Can those who play on others sites comment how much rakeback I would have earned there?

But its not all bad news, I have another 95,000 point chest to try and unlock......

March 11, 2018 | 12:44 p.m.

at 22 mins you starting talking about sizing in relation to your 3b bb v utg, could you please expand on this? not sure it has filtered down to lower stakes and I'm curious :P

Comment | Asdfghjkl1 commented on stars chests

i don't usually pay much attention to them but opened a load the other day and noticed how many points to go to the next one

March 7, 2018 | 11:10 p.m.

thanks man, but I meant 3 way or 4 way tables (not shortstacks), any advice on this?

March 7, 2018 | 7:19 p.m.

Post | Asdfghjkl1 posted in NLHE: stars chests

what is the largest number of points you have had to accumulate to open a chest? how good was the prize?

I have 95,000 to go to open my current one and it just seems ridiculous

March 7, 2018 | 7:17 p.m.

at 6:50 you 3b K9s, could you please talk about how your ranges change as tables get shorter? any further advice for learning to play shorter handed better? I love battling with regs but feel short handed is the weakest part of my game

March 3, 2018 | 12:21 p.m.

fwiw I ran the hand 200bb deep, and it had TT calling 80% of the time.

This is something I am also struggling with, how do we identify the stack size where the 100% all in, moves to much more of a call.

Feb. 23, 2018 | 10:23 p.m.

Thanks for your response Saulo

i do realise that villain wont have JJ+ every time, but if he doesn't have jj+ he will just fold and if he does we lose it all - which i am struggling to get my head around and have done for years to be honest and know i need to snap out of it

Feb. 23, 2018 | 10:13 p.m.

prefer bigger squeeze pre and to bet flop

not a big fan of turn sizing, it is a good card for vill range and not sure what worse hands are calling that size - not expecting donks to check back the j much on the flop

riv as played - i am really not sure, can see me check calling any bet (with blocking flushes), betting small or shoving... interested in others opinions and how it played out

Feb. 23, 2018 | 9:59 p.m.

for villain to be shoving KJ or A5 for value, he has to think we will call off the overbet with AQ here when he has very little bluffs in his range, seems ambitious to me...

Feb. 23, 2018 | 9:48 p.m.

curious about your cbetting approach here, flops like this I have always viewed as a small cbet 100%, would you mind explaining your thought process?

Feb. 23, 2018 | 9:45 p.m.

if we had the diamond combo, more happy to barrel turn or ch call as vill is more weighted to value.

with the clubs combo, prefer check raising all in - we are unlikely to get paid on river if we do hit, we have immediate fold equity with out crai and he can have diamond flush draw that we are ahead of and he might call off being a weaker player

nice hand imo

Post | Asdfghjkl1 posted in NLHE: Challenging my bias - 200z

200nl zoom, 100bb deep, very simple spot, we raise CO with TT to 3bb (both sb and bb I have tagged as fish from 100nl), get 3b by button to 10.25bb, we flat, flop 663 - pot 22bb

I've not played much 200z, but vill looks on the looser side from 90 hands.

We check flop, villain bets just under half pot.

I ran this through PIO and it wants us to raise TT 100% in this spot

I have always (probably from a coach drilling it into me a few years ago) viewed this as a spot where if we raise we only get called if we are beat, thus we are turning TT into a bluff or if we get it in, we are definitely behind

help me overcome this logic and tell me why my thinking is flawed

Feb. 23, 2018 | 9:16 p.m.

at 13mins we squeeze 99 bb v utg and 2 flatters.

Probably a simple question, but could you please explain why this is better than flat?

I love battling 3-4 way, but its the weakest part of my game.

can anyone link me to any good videos or articles, or any strategy advice

at 12mins, table 3, you say we can be raising JT on this flop. I don't see the benefit in this, can you please explain? same hand we bet the turn, what do we do Vs a check raise?

at 17:50 thoughts on table 2 villain 3bet with 99? how low do we go in our range 3b mp?

Nov. 19, 2017 | 9:40 a.m.

Great video, really enjoyed it and took several points away in just a few hands - looking forward to next videos

you mentioned you spent a lot of time studying early 2016? which you believe had a big impact, could you share your process? how do midstakes grinders make it to your level :)
